NBA 2K11 IS Basketball,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NBA 2K11 (PS3) (Video Game)
Much of what NBA 2K11 delivers has been done before. Like the boisterous crowds, eccentric commentary, historical challenges, player creation, poetic highlight reels and the well-tuned tracklist. NBA Live 10, for example, was the last Basketball game I played and delivers much of this. However, NBA 2K11 excels into greatness for the following reasons:
1) Gameplay. I attended some Basketball coaching sessions in my youth and can testify to the imppresive accuracy of play. The subtly of some moves could only be more real if you laced up your Jordans and shot some hoops yourself.
2) Opposition. The depth of NBA 2K11 means you have to consider more than player ratings to judge your opposition. The makeup and tactics of your team also play a key role. I played a fast attack, sacrificing size, and got dominated by a physical Boston Celtics. I heavily defended the paint and got picked off from downtown by Washington Wizards.
3) Michael Jordan. NBA 2K11 pays powerful homage to one of the greatest Ahletes, never mind just Basketballers, of all time.
NBA 2K11 IS Basketball!
